Steelers school desk

I was lucky enough to become the proud owner of an old one piece school desk recently.  I think I'm showing my age here because I remember actually sitting in one of these.  The desk was delivered to me a nice soft yellow color.  I had it loaded up and ready to go to the shop for resale just as it was but then I had a brain storm of how I could transform it. 

Hubby got in on the act too, he  filled in the cracks on the wooden top of the desk with wood puddy and sanded it down for me.

A little black spray paint, regular "mustard colored" paint, modge podge and left over wallpaper border later and this is how she looks now.

Now I know there are a few people out there that aren't Steeler fans but just imagine your own team that you support either college or professional.  What little boy or girl wouldn't want to do their homework on this desk?
